Is there any place to buy individual Mega Bloks parts like bricklink or brickowl or even just some standalone seller sites?

Short answer: not really.

Right now, The Bloks Forum and similar sites are about the only place where this sort of exchange goes on, and it's very much an informal process.

The general consensus seems to be that there doesn't appear to be a secondary market active enough to support a Bricklink-esque setup for Mega Bloks or other non-LEGO brands, alas.

You can always post in the Wanted to Buy/Trade/Sell group here, but do yourself a favor and don't ask about "clone brands" at Bricklink!

Okay, thanks. That's a bummer.

It would seem that with all of the other manufacturers of bricks out there that there would be enough demand for a site like bricklink for them. Does Lego really have that much market share that all of the other manufacturers don't generate enough interest to amount to more than a drop of water in the Lego ocean?

Already posted WBTS group, thanks for the suggestion about Bricklink and clone brands.

If there is a 2nd and Charles near you that has a Lego section and they separate out the other brands of brick, you may can contact them and work out a deal to buy off those other brand bricks.

Huh, I'd never heard of that store before. Hmm, the nearest one is about 2 hours away in Beaumont, ah must be why I hadn't hear of them.

Huh, I just found out that there's a 3rd market place to buy individual Lego parts, one called BrickScout. So that makes 3 different online marketplaces to buy and sell Lego parts, but nothing for any other manufacturer.
